AMCI Hymn

Ginintuang sinag ng araw sa bundok,
Lamig sa umagang may taglay na hamog,
nagbibigay sigla't lakas sa buhay ko,
Sa aking paggising kapiling ko.

Sa isip at puso ko'y kadamay ka,
Sa ginhawa at dusa ay kasama ka,
Nakatatak sa buhay ko'y pangalan mo,
Kabundukan kasa-kasama mo.

(Refrain)

Ulan, kulog, kidlat ay kasama,
Ngiti sa labi ay pag-asa,
Makamtan lang ang minimithi sa dibdib.

Tatak AMCI sa puso ko, tatak AMCI sa isip ko,
Tatak AMCI 'di ka iiwan sa kabundukan -
Kailan pa man.

Lipad-isip, lampas-ulap,
Nakatayo na matatag,
Kagandahan ng kabundukan,
Walang sawang minamasdan.

Repeat Refrain - 1st and 2nd Stanza

Kailan pa man (3x)

Sky Biscocho, Batch 1992
